Special Counsel Robert Mueller will finally speak publicly Wednesday morning
Mueller turned in a 448-page report to Attorney General Bill Barr but has not yet spoken publicly about it. The only glimpse of his views is a letter he wrote to Barr raising concerns about how Barr had presented his findings.
Mueller investigated ten cases of potential obstruction of justice by President Trump, but made no decision on whether he should be prosecuted for the conduct his report spelled out. He also made no finding that the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government-backed election hacking, although he examined a skein of Russia contacts.
